Psalms Chapter 5 - New International Version

1. Psalm 5 For the director of music. For flutes. A psalm of David.

1. Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my sighing.

2. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.

3. In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.

4. You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell.

5. The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.

6. You destroy those who tell lies; bloodthirsty and deceitful men the LORD abhors.

7. But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house; in reverence will I bow down toward your holy temple.

8. Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies-- make straight your way before me.

9. Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with destruction. Their throat is an open grave; with their tongue they speak deceit.

10. Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you.

11. But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

12. For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
